The maps on the garmin will be a 1000x better than the waze maps, most of the old inner city roads and suburbs aren't even mapped what so ever so once you need a suburb street or side street waze will be useless anyway whereas the garmin will have all those streets ready to go.


That is very much depending on where you use waze - "here" (the Netherlands), the maps greatly outperform ANY other map. Also in the very crowded and narrow city centers of this country.

Thanks, a 93 mile trip taken on October 11 and the return trip taken on October 13 has never posted. Most of the miles driven while out of town are missing too. Of about 250 miles driven that weekend Waze credited me with 59 miles.

I track and expense most of my miles. Last week I expensed 362 miles plus another 50+/- personal miles. Waze did credit me each day but at a reduced rate. Of 412 miles driven last week I was credited for 261.

Then yesterday I drove 65 miles and was credited with 122 miles.

Miles are credited so sporadic with errors over a long period of time I wonder if Waze is seeing the problem?

Yea Waze has been a bit iffy with getting everything processed in a timely fashion lately. I just finished a 2000+ mile trip, only a small chuck of the places I've been are showing in WME at the moment. A few weeks ago Waze took about a week to display all my drives from a 400 mile trip, it doesn't have any rhyme or reason as to why some of the legs of my journeys show up faster than others, as sometimes it was the shorter trips that are being delayed rather than the longer parts.

Either way, the drives and points do eventually show up, just not always as fast as one would like.

Seems like the miles reported issue was better, maybe fixed for a week. Then it started to fail again yesterday.

A question to Waze: Is there an end in sight to unreported miles or is this just the Waze it is?

I continue to loose miles each day in Waze. My one way commute is 32 miles and I that's about what I miss each day.

When I travel to an office different than my regular drive it works fine.

Is there a fix in the works?

Out of curiosity, could provide which phone you are using and if you have a network connection when you park at the office?

I drive ~40 miles each way to and from work with some of that not being connected to the network and I don't lose my mileage when Waze is working right. Are you shutting down your phone when not connected to the network / a wireless router?

+1 also, if there was a 'like' button (which there may be, not looked!) some comments deserve it :)
